I thank You, Jesus, my Divine Redeemer, for coming upon the earth for our sake,
And for instituting the adorable Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist
In order to remain with us until the end of the world. Amen.
Corpus Christi

The feast of the Body and Blood of Christ honours the Real Presence of Christ. We are Eucharistic people who believe in Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist.

Jesus Said “I myself am the living bread” (Jn. 6:51) and He nourishes us not only for this life but for eternal life. 

It is difficult to keep Gods’ love alive in our hearts without the Eucharist and to be a caring, united and loving community aware of the needs of our neighbours, especially the sick and the suffering.

Today not only will we see the Host and Chalice elevated at the Consecration at Mass, or placed in a Monstrance to be exposed on the altar for Adoration, but also carried in procession either in the Church or on our streets, concluding with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

When we receive the Eucharist the food for our journey, let us say thanks for the Body of Christ - Corpus Christi: Christ is present to us, to help us to be present to Him.

Let us treasure this great gift!

Anti-Catholicism shouldn’t be allowed to be the last acceptable prejudice:
Many Catholics tell me they’ve stopped reading secular newspapers. One man told me recently that he used to love reading the papers, but now he dreads turning the page because of what he might see: more contempt heaped upon the Church which he goes on loving, despite everything.
